Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski will attend this week's mandatory minicamp, he told reporters during a charity event on Monday. "I’ll be full go. I’m looking forward to it," he added. "Can’t wait to get back to work. I’m excited.” Gronk stirred up retirement rumors after the Super Bowl and didn't take part in OTAs. But he's fully committed for the 2018 season and deserves to be atop his position in fantasy football rankings. Gronkowski has come off the board in the early 3rd round of best-ball drafts over the past 2 weeks. He's a value there.

ESPN’s Jeff Darlington reports that Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski is expected to continue his career in 2018. Sources close to the veteran TE reportedly say he has yet to make a formal decision but that Gronk is more likely to continue playing than retire. Fantasy football owners should operate under that assumption for now. It’s a good time, however, to at least look into the seller’s market on Gronkowski in dynasty leagues. Gronk carries solid value in 2018 best-ball drafting so far.

Injury Predictor

Gronk should have the wing of a hospital named after him. He’s had major and multiple surgeries on his forearm, back and knee the past several years. And he has missed 22 regular games (excluding playoffs) the past 5 seasons because of injuries. He’ll be someone to keep an eye on this summer as he recovers from his third back surgery — an injury that forced him to miss half the 2016 NFL regular season.
